Can I take a second to complain about something? Can I just say how much I hate Etsy’s new layout interfacey thing?
I hate it. Really hate it.
My problem doesn’t lie with Etsy looking more like Pinterest…my problem is the removal of topical subcategories in each department. I used to think, “Hmmmm, I’d like a robot bracelet/ zombie brooch/ generalized nerdy ear cuff,” be able to drill down right through the subject, and be presented with a wide range of options, frequently finding items I hadn’t even thought to look for. Now, I have to rely on keyword searches, which turns a leisurely browse into a chore.
Posters and prints!
It’s hard to see in the photo below, but the print is a quote from Philip K Dick: ”Sometimes it is an appropriate response to reality to go insane.”
I’ve been enjoying fictional travel posters lately:
“Uranus is a giant ball of gas,” Wee Cousin said as he presented his Uranus pamphlet to his 2nd grade class.
This is just pretty.
And a bit o’Twin Peaks….
